Utilizing acoustic and electronic instruments, a new piano trio debates possibilities of contemporary interplay in a historic setting. New types of organisational principles, derived from musical concepts of different temporal and geographic origin enable the ensemble to effortlessly combine seemingly disparate sonic elements - from delicate contrapuntal structures and polyrhythmic chants to electronic clouds of sound, chordal clusters and plain melodies - into cohesive musical statements.

Mit akustischen und elektronischen Instrumenten entspinnt ein neues Klaviertrio einen Diskurs über Möglichkeiten des zeitgenössischen Zusammenspiels in historischem Format. Konzepte und Ideen unterschiedlichen geografischen und zeitlichen Ursprungs werden zu neuartigen Ordnungsprinzipien umfunktioniert welche es dem Ensemble ermöglichen, vermeintlich disparate musikalische Elemente miteinander in Einklang zu bringen. So ertönt feingliedrig Kontrapunktisches und tänzelnd Polyrhythmisches mühelos neben elektronischen Klangtürmen, vehementen Akkordclustern und schlichter Gesanglichkeit.

EINTRITT
Einer der Gründe, die den Zig Zag Jazzclub so einzigartig machen, ist, dass er der erste und einzige Jazzclub der Welt ist, dem es gelingt nur durch freiwilligem Eintritt/Crowdfunding Events von Weltklasse zu finanzieren. Und wie machen wir das? Ganz einfach. Während der Konzertpause geben wir bekannt, dass wir Geld einsammeln werden. Bei den meisten Konzerten (außer Jam Sessions) informieren wir unsere Kunden, dass ein Beitrag von ungefähr 15 Euro es uns erlaubt die Musiker gerecht zu bezahlen. Manche geben dabei mehr und andere weniger... und das ist auch in Ordnung. Wir haben auf diese Weise schon Hunderte Konzerte organisiert.

ENTRANCE FEES
One of the reasons that makes the zig zag jazz club so unique is that it is the first and only jazz club in the world that manages to finance world class events through a crowd funding concept. How do we do it? Its quite simple… during the break of the concert we make an announcement regarding the collection for the evening. For most concerts (excluding the jam session) we inform our customers that a fee of around 15€ per person will allow us to fairly compensate the musicians. Some people give more and some give less… and that´s ok… we ´ve already successfully promoted hundreds of concerts like this!!!
